Car Stolen - Does This Sound Like a Scam?

Posted By on Mon, Oct 15, 2007 at 10:14 AM

My friend who lives in the Poets Square neighborhood (Swan/Broadway/5th/Columbus) told me she had her car stolen on Friday.

She said the battery died and the emergency road service came to charge the battery. The guy told her to keep the car running for 30 minutes. The car, which is a later model minivan (Honda, maybe?) was sitting in her driveway.

Thirty minutes later, she went outside and the car was gone.

She thinks the emergency road service guy called one of his buddies to come and get the car.

She's a busy mom and didn't think about going inside and getting another set of keys to lock the car. (No, I am not putting down busy moms.)

I don't know what she told the police, but I'm just wondering if you think this sounds like a scam. This particular neighborhood like most other Tucson infill neighborhoods has a lot of theft.

Don't you think 30 minutes is excessive to charge a battery?
